Snooker returns to a familiar setting this week as the English Open takes centre-stage in Milton Keynes.
The Marshall Arena held the majority of tournaments during the coronavirus pandemic as the sport maintained a strict bubble, but fans are now welcome again as Judd Trump returns to defend his title.
Six-time world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan will make his first appearance since his shock whitewash to Hossein Vafaei at the German Masters, but Mark Williams misses out after testing positive for Covid.
